Kamron Coleman (B 1972) began his professional art career as a permanent gallery artist in Washington State in his early twenties. He spent 19 years as a self-employed stonemason, sculptor, and fabricator and finisher in many mediums for the construction industry. He secured Utility and Design patents for innovations in construction and wood-fired pizza ovens of his own manufacture. Kamron went on to stand up the sand casting discipline at the world-renowned Walla Walla Foundry, where he pioneered radical metal casting techniques for elements of some of the most expensive contemporary art in the world.
Since meeting his wife, harpist Bethany Evans, Kamron moved to the Willamette Valley, Oregon, where he has collaborated directly with symphony executives to create symphony-specific fine art for fundraising. Kamron’s collaborative symphony work began with his first attempt at oil painting, Salem Symphony, in 2017. Kamron’s work has raised thousands of dollars for symphonies in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Now a feature of the League of American Orchestras annual conference, numerous symphonies across the United States and Canada are working with Kamron to elevate the space where arts and human collaboration collide.
